Axl Shoots Down Guns N' Roses Reunion Rumors
Despite numerous published reports, Axl Rose has no plans to reunite the most successful Guns n' Roses line-up. Guns' co-manager Irving Azoff says, "There are no plans of a reunion, nor have there been any discussions of a reunion, with former Guns n' Roses band members. In the future, we hope that if media have any questions concerning G-n-R, they'd at least check their facts before running inaccurate stories for their own benefit."
Now we could post a smart ass retort to that last comment, given how difficult it has been to get information out of the GNR camp in recent years. But we won't, given that they have done a much better job in that area since they changed management and brought on a top tier PR firm (their choice of a web promo firm went in the other direction). But as always we caution our readers to always pay close attention to the source of stories. If rumors are attributed to unnamed sources, even those "close to the band," e.g. a rock star's gardener, take them with a grain of salt. Sometimes they do end up being true, like the Led Zeppelin reunion, that's why we do report on them in the Day in Rock but if something is labeled a rumor, it is just that.... until proven otherwise.
